Loving this.

Check out Pale Fire by Nabokov if you like this sort of thing.

Oh that sounds terribly pretentious. Sorry.

But do check it out. It rocks. It appears to be a poem and extensive commentary but as we know things aren't always what they seem.

Helen

Oh thanks Faris, I will check it out.

And don't worry, literary pretentions are positively encouraged round here. Mind you, so are low-brow literary tastes.

Love what some people can do with this, blurring the lines between fiction and non-fiction. I've just discovered this - http://www.plottingforbeginners.com/pfb/ - it's a blog 'written' by the main character in the novel, Plotting For Beginners. I haven't read the book, but what an interesting project, and a potentially fab way of getting publicity/keeping interest going etc for the author.

Helen

Oh cool thanks for that Jess. I really like this way of enriching the imagined-world and giving it a life beyond the book.

I've been thinking about it a lot since we talked about it with Harry Potter on Tuesday.
